We are more than Survivors
Sisters Thrive is committed to:
EDUCATE Black women about the importance of early detection because it literally saves lives.
ENCOURAGE Black women by sourcing resources because cancer can be financially crippling.
EMPOWER Black women with the skill set to thrive and not just survive post diagnosis because mindset determines your success.
Sisters Thrive is working to increase the survivorship rates of black women in underserved communities in Harris County while ensuring they maintain their quality of life.
Black women are 40% more likely to die from a breast cancer diagnosis in comparison to our counterparts because of late stage diagnosis.
In Harris County, home to Houston,Tx and the third most populated county in the nation, every other woman that dies from breast cancer is black.
Life is a precious gift. Cherish it! Breast Cancer gave me one of the greatest lessons I have ever learned in life. It taught me to cherish every moment and live life to the fullest. I learned I had breast cancer in August and had surgery in November with no chemo or radiation. I was diagnosed with stage 1a breast cancer and I thought what if everyone could find their breast cancer this early. During my recovery I realized how important it is focus on wellness (spiritual, physical, emotional and mental) because it has a tremendous impact on our health (mind, body & spirit). I decided to start a nonprofit to PUSH early detection, sources resources for breasties and ensure we thrive and not just survive. We encourage women of color to put our oxygen masks first and then use our voices are amplify our voices in the African American community. Felicia Pichon
